Ford Falcon: Upgrading to bigger wheels

Asked by Ted Dickinson

I have a written off 1999 AU Falcon with brand new 15-inch tyres on very nice mags and would like to put them on my 2000 AU which has 16-inch wheels and tyres. What would change if I did, and would it cause any damage?

The only thing you should be concerned about is the affect it might have on the speedo readings. Check the overall diameter of the 16-inch wheels and tyres and compare them to the diameter of the 25-inch wheel and tyre combination. If they're close to the same I don't believe you would have any trouble fitting them to the 2000 AU.
